Gun Princess Royale - Book 2 - Ch2. (Part III)

Chapter 2.
– III –

After listening to Clarisol’s plan, I had misgivings that I expressed to her.

What troubled me the most was the uneven balance of the situation.

Allow me to elucidate.

For twenty – maybe twenty-five seconds – I was surrounded in darkness, and contained within Brynhildr’s Sarcophagus.

I could feel it working on me, stripping me, and then clothing me again.

The Valkyrie Armor sheathed my limbs.

And then I was cast out of the darkness and into the light.

Actually, I was tossed back into the chilling black mist that billowed out of the breach between Pocket and real-space caused when my Sarcophagus poked its head into the battle.

More often than not, upon graduating from high school, a Familiar is faced with two choices.

Giving up their Artifact or Fragment, or continuing to use it.

If they choose to continue mastering or unlocking their Fragment, they can proceed down a number of avenues.

One of those avenues leads to tertiary education, or employment by their affiliated Pride. Alternatively, they can attend tertiary studies while being employed by the Pride.

“Who are you?” I yelled at her.

After clashing with her lance several times, we both retreated away from each other.

The opening exchange was simply to get an initial measure of our respective opponents.

Afterwards, I realized with a sinking feeling that I was at a disadvantage.

Not all Artifacts were the same.

Some were weapons and some were not.

Within this separation, they were classified into classes and types.

For example, there are Artifacts that fall into the Ruler Class.

Then there are those that fall into the Celestial Class.

Others belong to the Pantheon Class.

Within a class, they are further distinguished by types, and sometimes the classifications become messy. One example of this are the Valkyries.

Through the sensorium-field emanating from the anklets I wore, my link to the Valkyrie hiding in Pocket Space, nestled within its gun-metal grey Sarcophagus, I was able to understand the situation on the rooftop courtyard long before opening the door.

Because of this, I knew that I was too late to spare him injury.

I could only hope that I wasn’t too late to save his life.

The Prides called them Artifacts.

To the people of Pharos and the colonized systems under the control of the Prides, these Artifacts were powerful and mysterious devices found after the Cataclysm had torn our little corner of the galaxy apart. That is indeed true, since the Artifacts were fished out of the thick cloud of the Hurakan Nebula by numerous starships built for this kind of salvage.

Artifacts were also referred to as Fragments.

This is because Artifacts came in two packages.

My chest hurt so much I could hardly breathe.

I stumbled my way down the stairs, and after wiping away my tears, I hurried down the hallways.

To a great extent I was moving on instinct.

It was my body that remembered the way, and my feet that carried me to my classroom.

So as I turned into the open doorway, I wasn’t really seeing where I was going.

I bumped shoulders with a girl that was leaving.

When the Cataclysm ripped the galaxy apart for a radius of fifty three light years, it left behind the Hurakan Nebula.

Basically, the nebula formed from the remains of numerous planets, moons, and stars blown to bits by the trans-light shockwave.

That was more than two centuries ago.

Two hundred and thirty seven years to be exact.

Twenty years later, humanity had picked up the pieces and put together two spheres of political influence.

I had never felt as overwhelmed as I was that night.

I was drowning at the deep end of the pool.

I was caught in the harsh storm surf pounding a beach, rolled by the waves, dragged along the bottom, with no hope of finding my way back up to the surface.

Try as I might, despair crept mercilessly through my awareness, consuming it, corrupting it, and compounding the complexity of the situation that I was struggling box into a package I could then scrutinize and resolve.

Reflected in the glass windows of the admin building’s entrance, the sun behind us edged inexorably down to the horizon and inevitable sunset, and I realized that I hadn’t asked Clarisol whether this Game had a time limit, though I then considered the possibility that we would need to survive from sunset to sunrise, as it seemed fitting with what Clarisol had revealed about the Imperial type zombies.

“What the Hell is this?”

I held the Humvee’s side-view mirror in both hands up to my face and stared at my reflection.

“Why the Hell do I look like Mercy Haddaway?”

Each answer given by Clarisol had opened the door to roomfuls of more questions, but if I stepped inside to think about them then I would literally come to a stop. So as I hurried around the northern half of the circular school building, I chose to rationalize the questions to those immediately relevant to the current situation. That is to say, I limited myself to those questions that had an important bearing on the here and now.

I almost dropped the railguns as shock ran through me. Time seemed to suspend around me as my mind simply stopped thinking. I only recovered when I realized that I needed to breathe and that must have been a while later as I noticed that Clarisol was on her feet, peering at me intently, and Tobias and the girls were staring at me with mixed expressions.

I swallowed, finding my throat had dried, and returned the looks I was receiving.

“What…?”

The sound of the ocean waves, the chill in the air, and the storm enveloping it all was absent, replaced by a quiet stillness and dry warmth.

It didn’t take much reasoning to understand this wasn’t the island of the Proving Grounds.

The photographer takes the pictures, capturing me at various moments in time.

I turn. I smile. I pose as he wants me to, or at the least I try for this is something I am unaccustomed to. Though he’s a practiced hand, I can read the disappointment in his face as he’s not getting the pictures he wants. Normally I’d say ‘tough biscuits’ but instead I can feel my heart beating quickly, unable to calm down, and sense the onset of an anxiety attack encroaching upon me.

Telos Academy was built upon Telos Island, aptly named after the Telos Conglomerate or Corporation that leased it from the city-state governing authority some three decades ago. The island was one of three plateaued rocks rising from the waters of the horseshoe shaped harbor that was several kilometers wide.

From my window seat in the classroom, I watched the gulls ride the thermal currents flowing over the ocean waves. Looking small in the distance, they resembled tiny pieces of paper littering the air, rising and falling, sometimes lazily circling about. Nonetheless, I knew they were gulls and not paper, and for much of the afternoon homeroom period they had persistently nagged at my attention.

I will be honest with you…my outfit embarrasses me.

It is not unlike that worn by the other girls – the other Princesses – so in that respect I’m merely one of the pack.

Truthfully, some of their costumes – for lack of a better word – are far more risqué and revealing than my attire.
